Every spring, everbody in Texas who has either small children or dogs travels to the hill country to take a photo of their child and/or dog sitting in the bluebonnets. In some of the really good spots it hard to get a shot without someone else's child/dog in the photo.
That said, rest assured there is a stiff fine for molesting the wild flowers so everybody tip toes around very carefully to take photos. If you are from Texas post your dog in the bluebonnets photo here. And don't even try to tell me you don't have one. ;D
Here's my shot of Duke enjoying the view.
Just found this additional photo of both Duke and Freckles in the bluebonnets.
Ahhhhhhhhhhh! I didn't have dogs when I lived in Houston (1971-80) but oh the bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush are spectacular! It's true about caravans traveling to the hill country to see field upon field of them. Like making a pilgrimage to Mecca.
How very beautiful -- Duke, Freckles AND the bluebonnets. Here in New Hampshire in June, we take pictures in the fields of lupine --and same thing, sometimes you can barely find a vantage point to take your own picture without someone else's subject in it!
I'm from Texas right in the middle of the hill country, and I don't have a picture. This was my first spring with Sam, and the bluebonnets were sparse this year. Didn't rain right.
There is a field not too far from me (or used to be, they turned it into houses) where on good years, the ground literally looked like it was covered in blue snow. I've never seen anything like it. Made me sick when whoever owned it, sold it.
